Main Idea
Pop art challenged tradition by asserting that an artist's use of the mass-produced visual commodities of popular culture is contiguous with the perspective of fine art.
Iconic figures
Cultrural Objects
Pop art, aimed to employ images of popular as opposed to elitist culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture, most often through the use of irony.
Traditional Art
Pop Art Movement

Jasper Johns
